Holiday Card Boot Camp 2011

Hello blogland!  It's been almost two weeks since I've gotten to play in my craft room, but now that I'm all caught up with the other stuff, I've got all day tomorrow to play.  But what did I do today?  I signed up for Holiday Card Boot Camp 2011 and I can't wait!!  No matter how many holiday cards I've made, I can always use some new inspiration and who better to get it from then Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Warner.  Haven't heard of Holiday Card Boot Camp?  Go HERE for all the details and come join me, but hurry - classes start on November 7.

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Hello blogland! Welcome to my stop on the Operation Write Home blog hop! I'm already elbow deep in holiday cards, how about you?  Here's a few cards I'd like to share with you:

I've got a thing for snowmen and these are both stamps from StampersBest.  I've been making cards for Operation Write Home for two years now and always have them in mind when I'm making cards for challenges during the year - I try to make two of the same card and one goes right into the OWH box.  This way I have a nice variety of cards to send to our heroes, and one for me!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!
